Ash Wednesday/ 1st day of Lent

Lent Wellness day One
Good Morning,

Today is Ash Wednesday.  Today is officially the first day of Lent.  We have been preparing our hearts for this season the past couple of days.

Write down the one behavior you are going to fast or that you are going to do with a daily commitment this Lent season.

When you are tempted to break this commitment tell yourself, “ I love God I am doing this to honor Him” 

This is not a sacrifice.  Jesus paid the price of sacrifice for us.  This is a way for us to honor God.   His GRACE saves us not our works!  If you mess up don’t worry about it, just keep on keeping on.  Ask Jesus for strength, as a believer; you are already forgiven for everything yesterday, today and in the future.

Honoring God in all I do and all I am has been a pinnacle decision, which has helped my life tremendously.  The goal of this wellness challenge is to get us all to be more focused on honoring Him in our daily lives.  We are starting during Lent because this is a powerful time; it is a measureable time frame, ending Easter Sunday.  Hopefully we will take our honoring behavior into our daily lives throughout the year.

1 John 4:15 “Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwellith in him, and he in God.”

Be fit and be blessed,


**** 1 John 4 is a great chapter and relatively short***********

Please respond to this email with a respond to all or comment on the blog.  We will do better at honoring Him if we pray for each other and communicate with each other.

  1. Good Morning,

    I am going to honor God in my body by eating only small-normal serving sizes of dessert and only one a day if that. I was going to give up desserts entirely. I went with normal serving sizes because I want to be able to maintain my desired behavior change after Lent is over. This means tonight I will only eat a 1/2 cup of ice cream and it will be my only dessert/treat for the day. This may seem lame to you guys but it is a big step for me!

    What are you doing today?

    Be fit and be blessed,
